MOUNTAIN DALE, NY When Butch Resnick was growing up in this small working-class hamlet in the town of Fallsburg, he never imagined that decades later, he would be standing in the town's former grocery store, eying five-foot-tall painting of a naked Buddha. But times have change. Ms. Gingras seemed unconcerned. At 70, she had happily left her Brooklyn apartment for a small piece of Catskills. I enjoyed the excitement about giving this little village rebirth, she say. I could bring everything to people who dont even know it exist. Mr. Resnick, 50, self-describe country boy who has a hulk of a club bouncer but favors bright white sneakers and dad jeans, felt same way. Six years ago, he bought 31 buildings in MOUNTAIN DALE, nearly all of them vacant, hoping to revive the town. He knew this required courting a new breed of visitors: weekenders, artists and escapees from New York Citys high rents. But as a high-school dropout who makes his money manufacturing grocery store equipment, he didnt know how to find them. Then a friend introduced him to DVEight, regional magazine name for eight towns in the Delaware Valley that describes its audience as a stylish and sophisticated readership interested in exploring modern rural life. These were precisely people Mr. Resnick want. And so he hired magazine editor in chief, Nhi Mundy, 39, to be MOUNTAIN Dales town curator. Ms. Mundy's role is to turn Main Street into living version of a magazine. If a museum does it, why ca I do it? Mr. Resnick say. People behind these ventures frequently install their friends and acquaintances in storefronts, while attempting to preserve local history. Practice is rarely free of conflict, even when developers have the best intentions. Everybody in this country says Main Street America is dead. It bad investment, Mr. Resnick say. I am trying to recapture what I had as a kid. Everything was alive, every store was open. Now Ms. Mundy has brought in a new kind of kooky. In addition to the art gallery, theres antiques store specializing in old-timey Americana, vintage shop run by a breeder of Angora bunnies, conceptual boutique that also shows art and an apothecary run by a fashion model. Ms. Mundy, who owns two Vietnamese restaurants called Ba & Me, opened a third location in MOUNTAIN DALE. Forthcoming are coffee shop and bar, high-end restaurant, wine shop and bookstore. When Butch first approached me, I say, I am not taking part in this town that doesnt exist, Ms. Mundy say. But walking through MOUNTAIN DALE for the first time, she had the same feeling she had experienced in two other kinds of dead towns where she eventually opened her restaurants. I felt that energy, that promise that this town would work, she say. At least as its render in DVEight, which has circulation of 5 000 and ads from businesses like Kasuri and Tentrr, Ms. Mundys's aesthetic isnt easily define.

Culture Clash

There are two wings to the Facebook empire: sales and engineering. Engineering is the domain of CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Sales is COO Sheryl Sandberg's. Engineers like to work comfortably and quietly. Sales are loud. Engineering is young and very male. Sales skew older and more diverse. Most engineers can go their entire Facebook careers without ever meeting a salesperson, while only the best sales employees take time to build relationships with engineers. And in most of Facebook's offices, engineers and salespeople rarely interact. At headquarters in Menlo Park, California, for example, two work in completely separate buildings. But there are times when two cultures clash. These clashes are rare, but highlight the tension Facebook faces every day: It must build products that users love and want to use, while simultaneously providing enough value to advertisers to keep lights on. One such clash came in 2015 at Facebook's New York offices, one of the most densely populated in the company. Although sales and engineering were kept on separate floors in New York, two departments shared a common cafeteria. Facebook's New York sales employees often bring big clients into office for visits, taking them to lunch while on their visits. In that same space, engineers flexed their predilection for comfort. Engineers were going to the cafeteria without their shoes on, and the sales person write, 'Hey, we have clients. Please keep in mind this is a professional environment, ' former Facebook sales employee told CNBC. Everyone just treats it like a living room, says one former contractor. That's pretty much what they encourage You wouldn't bat eye if someone was walking around in slippers or socks. A former sales employee recalled seeing engineers walk barefoot into the bathroom and then barefoot into the cafeteria. The salesperson's post caused a flare up on the company's internal social network and in the New York office, according to five former employees and contractors who remember the incident, now known as shoegate. Sales and engineering employees leave hundreds of comments defending both sides of shoeless debate, and debating which side of the company was more important. The crux of debate comes down to: engineers build product, but salespeople keep lights on. Despite the battle of words, none of the former employees recall the company implementing any changes to policy regarding shoes. In 2016, Facebook leased space at another location in New York, giving two divisions more breathing room to coexist, but at that moment in time, it was a clash of cultures, former employees say.
